This is an old shot that I came across while doing Lightroom maintenance. Year after year you can see people who love New York City during Christmas for the lights, Rockefeller Centers giant Christmas Tree and the window scenes at some flagship department stores, but The Village Halloween Parade beats all that by a mile and it your are planning a holiday to New York City might I suggest the end of October.
This is a composite on two shots of East Broadway in Chinatown in Manhattan. Everyone takes this shot when they walk across the Manhattan Bridge and if you’re lucky you will be able to get the shot in January and you will see the decorations for Chinese New Year, but in my opinion it really is a boring shot aside from just taking for your personal collection.
If you every happen to see this gentleman say hello. His is the friendliest bus driver you will ever meet even on a Sunday morning during a walk of shame!
This is an old shot I took a few years back on one of the early morning walkabouts. Seeing the city wake up on a Monday morning it quite entertaining.
I was joining a couple friends for a pint in Jersey City when it started pouring out and I saw this man walking I assume at the end of his work day ready to start his weekend and I just had to take the shot.
I have the luck of knowing some very talented people and with that I have been giving some exclusive entry into the minds of these people. In this photo is Emmanuel Reyes a good friend and a talent in his own right who has been putting in the hours to master his craft of tattooing.
Hit 60 degrees last week and the city came back to life.
Living in or around a big city like New York City even for a short amount of time is something that everyone should experience for the only fact that you will learn more about yourself in a big city then you will anyway else. I can’t really explain what I mean, but it can and will change your views real quick.
Chinatown in Manhattan is one place where everyone from locals to the tourist seem to gravitate towards and I don’t have an explanation why. I can spend a week just wondering around here and not get bored with anything I see.
Coffee, Water, Beer and not always in the order. I stopped by 787 Coffee in the East Village yesterday and I can say the coffee was good enough to make into my cabinet. A little side note, I am a bit basis towards coffee grown in Puerto Rico.
The things you might see but don’t notice is one of the main reasons why I love walking around New York.
Sunny days are great, but I will take gloomy and foggy everyday of week if I could.
